Gift Ideas for Dad

He was your first best friend, is always there to offer a helping hand, and gives the best advice (even if he throws in some corny dad humor along the way). A guy this great deserves a gift to match, so this Father’s Day skip the “World’s Greatest Dad” mug and surprise him with something he’ll really love.

gift ideas for dad 1. A shirt from Columbia Sportswear’s PFG line is a no-fail Father’s Day present. Not only will your dad be well-dressed, he’ll also become obsessed with how comfortable and durable these button up shirts are.

2. If he spends weekends out on the green or fishing on the lake, you can’t go wrong with giving him an Under Armour hat this year.

3. Summer days = lake days. Help him prepare for some serious summer fun with a pair of new boardshorts or swim trunks.

4. Buying himself nice clothes might not be at the top of your dad’s to-do list, so take the guesswork out of looking good and surprise him with an 1897 polo!

5. He needs shirts for his off days as well. Try a v-neck tee and help dad elevate his casual style.

6. Our 1897 shorts will be a home run, no matter your dad’s personal style. At only $29.90, these men’s shorts make for an affordable Father’s Day gift your wallet will love just as much as he does.

7. For the guy who already has everything, try a Yeti rambler! These personal drink coolers are tough, hard-wearing, and maintain ice twice as long as plastic tumblers — and it works just as well for hot beverages.

Spring Break Essentials

The Boardshort Breakdown. Billabong’s Style

Hey guys and gals, Spring is just around the corner, with Summer close behind. That means sunshine, warm weather, and most fun of all, water activities! Whether you live on a sandy beach, have a boat docked on your nearest local lake, or get your recreational water sport kicks on the mighty Mississippi river, a man’s best friend in the water is a pair of great performance boardshorts!

It’s quite evident that Billabong shares our love of the water as shown by their super cool “Life is Better in Boardshorts,” 2012 campaign!

Billabong’s humble beginning started when Gordon Merchant began producing handmade boardshorts with his wife Rena in 1973 from their house in Burleigh Point, Australia. This cherished tropical refuge of Gordon’s was a place where you could wear boardshorts all year round.  Merchant, also a surfer himself, as well as, a board shaper, wanted to develop boardshorts that not only provided the best fit and quality, but could also withstand the various elements that surfers encountered while out in the water.  His business found an instant following, the boardshorts being produced by the Merchants proved to possess amazing performance and resilience in the water, due to the triple-stitching technique developed by Gordon.

Now, fast-forward to 2012 where Billabong is an international company known and respected for its dealings in the boardsport industry.  But, even through all its growth since 1973, Billabong continues to “keep it real,” and maintain its roots by continuing to uphold its commitment to global boardsports through event hosting and sponsoring industry athletes.

So, for Billabong, life really is better in boardshorts! What better way to prove this than with their Platinum X and Recycler Series. The really cool thing about the Recycler series is that the boardshorts are made from recycled PET bottles. So like, Billabong says “Innovation through performance and conservation.”

So, let’s meet Billabong’s Influence boardshort. This men’s striped boardshort packs all of the high-performance details you need into one style punch!  And by style, we’re referencing the really cool screen print/color combo this short is donning!

The Billabong Men’s Influence boardshort features:

  • Zero Gravity fabric, which is an exclusive Billabong fabric that uses Quad X Stretch (four-way stretch) to boost flexibility in all directions.
  • H2 Repel, this technology forces water to bead off the surface of the fabric. This equals less rash/chaffing.
  • Ergonomic Panels, for maximum stretch, any yoga instructor can’t compete with.
  • Recycled ZG fabric, made with recycled PET bottles and saving the environment on pair of boardshorts at a time.
  • Welded Seams, stretch 100% with the fabric, creating smooth, comfortable seams.

Also from Billabong is the Men’s Striker boardshort.  This super functionally fun boardshort sports a horizontal multi stripe design, a solid contrast waistband, is scalloped and features side taping.  It looks really cool in this mint, black and white color combo!

The Billabong Men’s Striker boardshort features:

  • PX4- Hydrostretch
  • Quad X Stretch (4-way mechanical stretch)
  •  H2 Repel, a moisture wicking finish that reduces water absorption and friction
  • 100% Recycled Polyester
  • 20” Performance Fit
  • PX Infinity Weld, meaning less seams to maximize the fabric’s full stretch potential

Feel like “the Dude” in the Billabong Men’s Vantage Platinum X boardshort! The color combo of blue, aqua, yellow and black make the geometric print pattern really POP. The Billabong wave logo chilling on the left leg versus the horizontal striping on the right gives this boardshort it’s own style.

Not forgetting Billabong Men’s Vantage Platinum X boardshort’s awesome features:

  • Made of Recycler Zero Gravity fabric, that is lightweight and preferred by athletes, because of it’s extreme flexibility and stretch.
  • Part of the Recycler Series, boasting an 87% recycled polyester/ 13% spandex ratio, packing performance and conservation into each pair of boardshort.
  • H2 Repel, moisture wicking to prevent chafing.
  • Quad X Stretch (4-way stretch)

Love them like you love your dog, boardshorts are truly man’s best friend this summer. Glik’s is here to provide you with top-notch performance boardshorts for your active summer season! Be sure to visit us at gliks.com or any Glik’s store location nearest to you.
